Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London is actively promoting cycle cargo logistic companies and is introducing new cycle superhighways wide enough for three-wheelers. Congestion charge, diesel pollution taxes, air quality, noise pollution and the publics fast growing environmental awareness are all contributing to a shift towards sustainable transport solutions.

Cycle logistics offers both a low initial investment and reduced running costs when compared to a van, combine this with ease of movement through congested streets and you can see why major commercial operators like FedEx, DPD and UPS are starting to invest in cargo bikes & trikes.

The Iceni Cycles team based in Wiltshire design and manufacture electrically assisted cargo trikes specifically for zero emission city logistics and urban freight transport.

Light and nimble through use of quality materials including T45 aircraft grade steel and aluminium, the monocoque chassis and body are integrated offering maximum strength, reduced weight and a low centre of gravity for safer handling. Along with a combination of top-grade bicycle components the trikes have an industry leading kerbside weight of less than 100kg. They are designed to carry rider and a 250kg payload in safety.

The aluminium 1500 litre Cargo Box is both strong & rigid, offers easy panel replacement and various door options.  Will accept EURO pallet 120cm x 80cm rack and internal shelf can be removed offering load flexibility. Various door options available including 1 or 2 door, friction hinges, rod lock, slam lock and remote key fob operation. Clear line of sight to rear for maximum rider safety.

We specify the robust, class leading Heinzmann Direct Drive AC motor system complete with torque sensor to provide throttle free, seamless power assist and includes regenerative braking & hill start functions. Our integrated motor installation offers high torque rear wheel drive via differential of up to 100Nm for maximum traction and hill climbing ability offering superior performance on all road conditions.

The drivetrain is very efficient with no heavy and unreliable rear axle, keeping the rotational mass down has a significant advantage in terms of acceleration, improved battery range, brake pad wear and rideability.

High quality hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano gearing, rear view mirrors, parking lock, wheel lock, optional LED lighting & horn complete the package.

Reliable and easy to maintain, utilising many standard cycle parts offering a low cost of ownership.

Sam Keam of Recharge Brighton

"The streets of Brighton are a brutal testing ground for new equipment, with potholed roads, tight spaces, and steep, long hills. The trike has really shone, and is providing us with a reliable, robust and versatile delivery vehicle. The riders love the surefooted handling, and the Heinzmann electric-assist provides ample power for moving goods up the various hills on our routes. It’s great to see Iceni get so much right first time, and we won’t hesitate to buy again as we expand."

Richard Jennings of Outspoken Norwich

“We now have two Iceni trikes, they are a joy to ride. The Iceni trikes are more comfortable to ride than other trikes and very stable so they are popular with riders. Having a manufacturer in the UK is definitely an advantage for support.”

Ian Brocklebank of Last Mile Leeds

“my staff were much happier to take out the Iceni than the other trikes on offer.  I really thought of our trial as an opportunity to test the benefits of trikes in general, but the positive feel of riding the Iceni was such that I immediately committed to buy one”
